An Unvarnished History of Housing Discrimination in Chicagoland

Wilmette Historical Museum

Join the Wilmette Historical Museum in welcoming Dr. Sarah Doherty, Associate Professor of U.S. History & Public History at North Park University, to speak about Unvarnished, a digital exhibition for which she was a core researcher, writer, and creator that centers around housing discrimination in the northern and western United States. Unvarnished recently won an Award of Excellence from the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH). Doherty’s talk will provide context for why Chicago is central to regional and national conversations and scholarship about housing discrimination and exclusionary housing practices.
